(3.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to an enshrined 16th-century samurai, Takeda Shrine offers blessings to samurai warriors who gather here for the annual samurai parade. With some 1,000 cherry blossom trees, the shrine features a large "kagure," a Shinto theatrical dance outlet featuring occasional performances, and a carp pond where you can feed the fish. You can also spot black-crowned night herons in the garden. A small museum inside the shrine features Takeda Shingen’s weapons, armor, colorful battle standards, and other personal belongings. You can also see Kamakura-period sword, listed as a national treasure, on display at the shrine, which sits eight minutes from Kofu station by bus or taxi.

  • Walked away from the station, but was fine. We asked local people, 40 minutes? You can use the bus bus from Kofu station every 30 minutes, so don't walk like people. And the women I've walked it 30 minutes or took. But maintained the trail along the way, University of Yamanashi, good atmosphere, velodrome walk would do very well. Was quiet at the shrine and the atmosphere. I no it is treasure house is small. Also he "--" flags were on display.

  • Yamanashi said still Takeda Shingen and Takeda shrine has been visited in that. At the end I climbed the gentle uphill from Kofu Takeda shrine. Kofu basin because of the 躑躅ヶ崎 shrine might have looked even Takeda Shingen appears. Takeda shrine and treasure Museum, highlights landscape light sword and Takeda banner. So enjoy the exquisite nokyo-sho Takeda shrine reputed visits mark.
